Not the news Blues fans wanted over the summer break. David Davis is believed to have been injured in training with a suspected broken ankle.
Although there is no announcement as yet, Brian Dick from BirminghamLive has tweeted the following earlier this morning:
The defensive midfielder looked to be a certain starter for the new campaign under Monk, but the Blues boss may have to turn to the transfer market for a short-term replacement.
The 27-year-old made an impact towards the latter stages of last season, helping Blues secure safety in the division. The St Andrews faithful will be hoping he has a speedy recovery.
